Where to buy UK investment property

As the owner of 243 investment properties and with over 60 development projects running throughout the UK I am always getting asked the following question: “where are the best places to buy investment property?“

My answer is this; “it depends!”

Here is a quick video explaining where to buy UK investment

I also explain in a second video…

The importance of super safe leverage. This is something every investor should understand however very few investors really do understand the true meaning. It is what allowed me to buy more than a property a week for almost three years without running out of money!!

No its not borrow 75% on a mortgage and only put in a 25% deposit, that is not what I mean by super safe leverage.

Don’t just become a better than average investor !!!!

Learn how to smash average!!!

You need to understand what you need to understand to become a sophisticated investor.

Remember you do not know what you do not know whatever level you are at.

Property multi-millionaire Glenn Armstrong launches HMO sourcing service for advanced investors

A national network of graduates from the Glenn Armstrong Property Partnership initiative is now set to provide a sourcing and management service for advanced investors who don’t have the time to find suitable properties for their portfolios or want to invest in properties in parts of the country distant from their homes. The service sources properties suitable to be HMOs (houses in multiple occupation) which provide higher investment returns than individual buy-to-let properties.

Launching the new service (glennarmstrong.com/hmo-sourcing), Glenn Armstrong said, “Many investors live in and around London, but they don’t have the time to source, refurbish, upgrade and manage properties themselves. Or perhaps they want to invest in the lower cost, higher yield areas like Liverpool, Hartlepool, Newcastle etc. (which produce far better net cashflow and yield than London properties) and know that they can’t effectively do this themselves from their southern locations.

“So I’ve trained my team of property development partners throughout the country to source, upgrade and manage profitable HMO properties all around the UK.”

Armstrong’s HMO sourcing team are all experienced property investors in their own right – so they are highly skilled at what they do. All have been trained and mentored by Armstrong himself and have graduated onto his Partnership Programme – where Armstrong and the Partner undertake joint venture property projects from a few £100k to several £million per project.

Armstrong and his partners typically have some 50 to 60 property development projects underway around the UK at any one time.

“Because they are looking for refurbishment and development projects all the time, my partners are highly experienced in finding the right sort of properties to each investor’s exact specifications,” said Armstrong. “And as my partners are spread throughout the UK, we can source upgrade and manage HMO properties almost anywhere in the UK to suit each specific investor’s requirements.”

The sourcing team are all trained in refurbishment estimation and are also skilled in the project management of any upgrades to properties that may be required to make them profitably rentable. They can also either manage the entire property for the investor, or introduce the investor to a suitable letting agent in the local area – one specifically skilled in HMO management.

“This is not a scheme for amateur investors” warns Armstrong. “We will find HMO properties for investors, we can manage refurbishments and tenants if required, but we are not financial advisors and so it remains the investor’s responsibility to do full due diligence. Investors must demonstrate to us that they know what they’re doing when it comes to property investment.”

Armstrong also pointed out that this is not a managed-investment programme and that investor’s capital is placed directly into the property by the investors’ solicitors and not through Armstrong’s company. Fees are of course charged for the sourcing service and for additional services if required.

“What we can do is find properties with high yields often at below market prices and provide experienced local hands-on expertise to make the process far easier for time-poor cash-rich investors to own the more profitable HMO properties.”

What Is Rent to Rent?

What is Rent to Rent?

Rent to Rent is simple enough to explain as it is a very simple strategy. You simply rent a property yourself and then rent it out room by room to other tenants. Renting a property that you do not own and renting it out room by room.

Landlords love it because you give them long term security of tenancy and you look after the property and take care of the smaller maintenance jobs yourself.

You carry out a small refurb with the landlord’s financial help and approval and find tenants to live in the property who pay you rent.

Profit is the difference between the rent you pay to the owner and the rent you get paid by your tenants minus your costs which may include utilities, broadband, council tax etc.

You need to find a Landlord who is happy to rent their property to you with the knowledge that you will be subletting to other tenants. They will need to be fully insured and, if they have a mortgage, they must inform their lender of the change in status.

NEVER sublet a property without the landlords consent and NEVER sublet a property until you have all the insurance and lender’s consent in writing via the landlord. This will make sure that all the hard work you do does not go to waste and most importantly you don’t mess your tenants around.

It also one of the quickest ways you can make a passive income with little capital of your own. You take control of a property and transform it into multiple rooms that you let by the room.

We tend to rent out to professional or blue collar workers from companies we have relationships with and who use us on a regular basis. You can also rent out to LHA and other various tenant types – it all depends on your area and what you tenant type you are prepared to work with. Some are harder than others and some are more profitable than others.

Our ROI or return on investment time frame is always targeted at 3 months. In other words we like to get our money back that we put in to set the property up including deposit, furniture and any light refurb in this short period. We don’t always have to furnish a property and we also rarely pay deposits.

Beyond that, the rest is pure profit.
